Dalli, not unlike Tap, preserves the rough contour and utilises irregularities to produce fluid and harmonious lines. In this case, however, the handwriting style is deliberately pushed almost to the point of illegibility in some places. This is primarily implemented using a large number of ligatures and alternative letters, which are added automatically by means of OpenType features. For instance, there is a ligature nn, which can also be used for nu, un or uu, just as in real life. So “Dalli, Dalli”, in two bolds!
Dalli Fonts are available in different versions:
OpenType Basic covers the Western and Central European character set and contains one set of numerals (tabular). OpenType Expert covers the Western and Central European character set and contains various numerals and other OpenType-Features for advanced typographic performance.
OpenType Basic contains only the black characters, OpenType Expert contains the grey characters too.
